Halloween 2008 marked the second birthday of the self-esteemed Detroit4lyfe blog. I just wanted to take this time to wish it a happy birthday, and share with some of our new readers the evolution of the blog that was formerly just a 'soggy blog' that started as a result of the growing blogging fad.
I created this blog back in 2006 simply as a way to write for fun and share my random opinions for some of my close friends. I never knew that one day I would have far greater aspirations for my writing and would eventually be sharing stories with over 200 readers a day. My hope now is for that number to continue to grow with the popularity of this blog.
Over the past two years, this blog has transformed from a very unprofessional, mind dump to a somewhat more coherent display of words, that predominantly gravitates toward sports. After a year or so, to spice things up a bit and provide a different outlook on the sports world, I added my best friends on as contributors to the blog. Their scholarly input is a big reason why the blog has so many new readers.
As time moves forward, we will attempt to provide a unique perspective to different situations in sports, and life as well. While we will continue to focus on the issues within the Detroit sports community, we will definitely touch bases with the rest of the sports world.
Sometimes our stuff is overtly sarcastic and we appreciate those people who realize and understand it. For those of you who don't, I highly recommend you get with the program. Life is too short.
Again, thanks to everyone who comes back day after day to read what we have to say. It is definitely greatly appreciated. Please don't be afraid to leave comments and help us as we diligently try to help inform you, and possibly force you to smile or laugh once in a while too. We are continously trying to think of ways to improve this site. Thank you for all those who have been instrumental in the process.
Happy birthday, Detroit4lyfe. Many more memories and stories to come.
